Sun King

Giles Alexander

Australia, perhaps more than any other continent, seems forged in a furness of fiery heat. Similarly, the Milky Way has an intense fire ball at its red centre. Since the enlightenment western science has gradually come to appreciate that rather than the hell-fires of destruction, the Sun in fact forged us a home among our planetary neighbours and as indigenous peoples have recognised for millennia, facilitated the very seeds of life on Earth.
